​Testing, adjusting and balancing will address factors such as:

​The proper function of a heating and cooling system requires more than simply installing the equipment and turning it on. By itself, a forced-air furnace, air conditioner or heat pump will provide heating and cooling, but indoor comfort will not be the best the equipment is capable of producing. The HVAC system will also function at a lower level of efficiency than it's designed for, which means you'll waste both energy and money. To ensure your heating and cooling systems are operating at their best, it's necessary to perform testing, adjusting and balancing on your HVAC equipment.

Testing, adjusting and balancing

  • ​Airflow quantities from the HVAC unit​
  • ​Amount of air flowing through the ductwork and exiting into the building from registers, vents and grilles
  • ​​Pressure levels, including air velocity, barometric pressure, static pressure, differential pressure and total pressure
  • ​Mixture levels and temperatures of air in plenums
  • ​Air turbulence and stratification within the system
  • ​Fan and blower operation, including motor amperage and voltage
  • ​Fan speed and rotation
  • ​​Proper operation and sequencing of automatic control systems
  • Perform full performance and water temperature gradient for all water system equipment (Pump, Chiller, Cooling Tower, Boiler & Heat Exchanger). Compare actual performance with design specifications.​
  • ​Set up the amount of water flow that is distributed from each Balancing valve (AHU, FCU, and Cooling/Heating Coil & Heat Exchangers).
  • ​Balance water flow on all Pumps, Cooling Towers, Chillers, Boilers, and Air Handling Unit Coils.
  • ​​Measure total water flow on all hot, chilled & domestic water.
